Looks really good man, and that's a lot coming from me. How low is it!?

Reminds me of my VS S pack. I bought that for $10,500! Ah, those were the days.

As always: convert to manual, diff gears, get off your Ps and throw a decent motor in there.

hey man , nice car sits at nice height, but one thing. You should change that pod filter and go back to the box, that pod sitting here is suckin in hot air off the engine and getting bearly any cold air to it. up to you tho mate. but nice car anyway.
